We’re all adults here, right? And we all adore a little drink to celebrate momentous occasions or relax at the end of the day. Whether your preference is toward a rich and velvety stout or a fruity cocktail, umbrellas included, you know you love dressing the part while sipping a tipple. I’m the first one to be completely decked out perched on a barstool; which goes for both dive bars and swanky hotel lounges alike. So let’s play something I have dubbed “dress association.” I tell you what we’re drinking… and then I tell you what we’re wearing.

Beer

At the end of a long day there is nothing like an ice cold brew. I think of craft ales and moody hipsters looking like models off duty. What better pairing than a light beer and the Alexander Wang silk shirt dress.

It can be worn so many ways, (open over a tank and shorts with the Givenchy leather “Ricky” boots is preferred)

and it fits into the tough girl vibe drinking beer gives off.

Champagne

Are you a demi sec kind of a girl, or do you prefer brut? Pinkies up darlings, we’re sipping bubbly, (I prefer Veuve. The yellow label is such a divine gift)! The joie de vivre is what you’re after, obviously, and your personality is matched by the golden effervescence tickling your nose; also it’s night time. Don this Lanvin luxe mini sheath dress

and drape it in statement making feminine jewelry like the Oscar de la Renta rhinestone necklace.

Mix it Up

You like it shaken, not stirred, and completely delicious. Really though I think it’s the pretty colors and nifty glasses that has everyone agog over mixed drinks; juggling bartenders definitely help. Put as much wow into your wardrobe while sipping a tasty jewel toned Midori Sour with the Hanii Y peony print dress.

It’s an easy and fun choice and deserves an equally intoxicating handbag with a clean finish like the Lanvin jeweled detail satin clutch.

With a twist of citrus,
